How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Ohh man soooo close....

Started off calm and relaxed, and was only +2 thru 5 (FIVE!) holes. 

Maybe I started thinking about the "What If?" scenario and/or maybe it was the roadblock ahead we ran into, but .. lost my rhythm and went double-triple-triple the next three holes .......

My goal today was to work towards an error free round but after a two-chip followed by a splash on each of the next two holes after that .. owwch! .. that new PB fantasy was shattered!

On the plus side, felt like I had most (not all, but most) of the tee shots under control; regained some confidence in chipping; and had several putts that shudda-cudda-wudda dropped in one. Also had a decent bunker 1-out and juuuust missed the comeback putt.

Finished that last hole with a bogey which was actually a good save from where I hacked the tee shot to; for a +11 (or +2 over bogey golf).

Shot 86.  Didn't play well at all today.  My right hand is sore and couldn't put any power on my swings, not that I have a lot anyway, but less than usual means I need more up and downs.  I couldn't do that either, since the greens are still recovering from aerating early in the week

I got lucky on #12 a par 3 playing 150y into a 15mph breeze.  Shot has to clear a bunker... mine didn't, leaving my ball a foot from the lip. With no followthrough, I hit a little too much sand.  The ball popped out but landed in the rough on an upslope short of the green.  Since the ball was on the upslope, my 3rd shot went fairly high, bounced once and slam-dunked into the cup...  one of my few pars.

Team Cup match play event to end the league season. Won 4 and 3 in alternate shot, 1/2'd the 4-somes match, and then won singles 2 and 1. 

Saturday's rounds I hit the ball pretty solidly all day, and my partner was able to bail me out when I got wild. Sunday was a roller coaster. Up 5 after 6 holes, gave it all back by 14th, then had back-to-back wins on 16 and 17 to win 2 and 1. All at the Innisbrook resort with Sunday singles on the Copperhead course.

Not a good day - ended up with a 50 on the front and a 44 on the back. Biggest issue was putting. I was missing putts every which way, including a 3 footer for a bird. They just plugged the greens and so much sand on them I felt like I was putting in the bunkers.  This is what I was dealing with.

Oh, that's not bad.  It'll heal quickly!  And, a necessary evil!

Played Bill Roberts GC in Helena yesterday for the first time.  I got paired with 3 ladies who play there a couple of times/week.  They were all good players and pretty much dead straight down the middle.  I wore myself out repeating "nice shot". It was great having three caddies explaining the course to me as we went along.  At one hole, two got into a minor dispute as to whether I should lay-up or cut a corner over the tree line 😂.  I chose the latter, made it, and they were thrilled.

It's a nice course and very well maintained.  The front 9 is the newer layout and it is quite a bit more challenging.  Three of the holes have double dog legs and present a bit of a quandary off the tee.  I was hitting the G410P really well and opted to go for every challenge.  The back 9 is the original course, has considerably less slope, and more open off the tee box. My score reflected the difference. I ended up with a 44/39 (-1 thru #15).  Upon reaching the tee box after getting a birdie on #12, they had 4 cups out and a flask of Bailey's Irish Cream... apparently this drinking game is catching on beyond Yuma 😀.

Got a promotion at work and have not had hardly any time to play.  I was able to play 9 holes on Saturday evening.  Played ok, hit a few good very good shots and some very dumb ones.  Best was a 4 iron from 225 on a par 3 to a tucked pin - settled around 15 feet aaaaaaand missed the putt.  Greens were marked up from the days play and playing pretty slow so no big deal.  Glad I got to get out and play.  Have an outing upcoming at Laurel Valley Golf Club which is always in pristine shape.

Tuesday Men's League - 18 stroke play. Not so hot - the Driver was working, but on the front the short game was abysmal. On the back I was able to recover some with a 44. 
But wait..... I get home my wife says she'd like to play 18. So I told her I'd go with her and probably only play the front.....................wait for it....a bird on #4..................................................................................................................

AND my nemesis hole - the one that the best I've ever done is a bogie. I parred that hole THE SPELL  is broken! AND I booked a 41 - best I've ever done on the front!

I can only hope. Actually I was so energized with the 41, I secretly wanted to play the back - but knew we'd run out of daylight and she wouldn't be able to finish 18. ....as the saying goes "happy wife......" BTW she played the front and back well.

Started with a triple on the first hole of league tonight, but fortunately, that was the only trouble that started with a bad drive. I hit 4 of 5 of the remaining fairways and ended up +2 over the remaining 8 holes with 13 putts total. Irons weren't terribly sharp, but everything else was in pretty good shape.
